So as most of you know I have a lot of stories running on this journal and some of them are on hold (anything Sims -original-, Sims 2, Sims 3 with World Adventures) because my desktop needed to be reformatted (I saved all of the games except Sims original) and currently refuses to connect to the internet and it is easier for me to just deal with one story at a time right now anyway .  I have a dreamwidth account that I have been randomly using to host a separate journal that is solely about my health since I didn't feel like this was the best place to post those.  I have 10 invite codes to make other journals with and I was thinking about moving the  stories to separate journals so that each journal would be about one story and then this journal would be sort of a general Sim (downloads/uploads not related to a story) and other things kind of journal with links to the other stories and a once a week (or longer depending on how much posting I don't do) post here about what has been updated else where.

The only problem is that dreamwidth does not yet do image hosting (all of my photos are currently hosted here) and I am not sure what LiveJournal's owners would think about all of the files they are hosting being displayed on another site.  I could set up a PhotoBucket account (or 8, one for each story), but that would involve re-uploading all of the images and I am not sure if I have the brain power to do that right now. 

I was wondering what others thought about having story specific journals (it might encourage me to complete them since they will be all that, that journal displays) and moving the posts from here to another location.  I have been trying to keep my profile's story list up-to-date so if someone wants to read something they don't have to go searching for all of one story's posts, but I do sometimes forget to do that for a few weeks before I remember I didn't update it.  I am also considering just moving the stories to new LiveJournal accounts so they would each have their own photo albums and everyone would be able to comment since not everyone has a dreamwidth account.

I would most likely keep copies of the posts here, at least the ones with comments, since I do not want to lose those.
If the problem is picture storage why not use Scribd or Slideshare, then the pictures stay stored on your computer. I like it because I'm lazy and it saves uploading elsewhere. :)
It is not due to lack of picture storage here, I still have plenty with what the free account includes and do not foresee running out any time soon.

It is more about lack of organization since I have posts from something like 8 different stories all mixed in together and so when someone wants to read something from them, unless they know to look at my profile, which I tried to make obvious by including the direction to see it in my header, they may not be able to find all of them even after I went through and retagged everything. I am one of those people who has to have everything just so and will reorganize and reorganize until I am happy with it.

Sometimes I think I just need to get over it that the posts are not all in nice neat little groups, but it is a really big eye sore for me on my own journal and since I have seen other people either moving entries to other journals or starting other journals for new stories, it was something that I thought might be a good idea for my very compartmentalized brain.
I think most people would look at the tabs.
I don't have all my stuff organized because I didn't know what the tabs were for ages, and I still forget sometimes to tag them until later, but I think all my main stuff is on them now.

I guess you do have a lot of tabs. Maybe you could cut down on the amount and then it would be easier to find things.
I'll have to think about that and if I did that, how I would want to name things differently. It took a while the first time to go through and retag everything (I cut my tags in half number wise) so having a plan and an obvious naming structure will help.

Thank you, I will consider that as an alternative.
